Part 1: Assessment
1.5 hour video course
A recent survey of over 1500 SLP’s collected by Bjorem Speech indicated that over 88% of SLP's consider themselves novice/still learning in the area of childhood apraxia of speech. If SLP’s do not feel comfortable explaining, diagnosing and treating CAS we are unable to help, parents, teachers, paras and administrators support helping children with this disorder. During this course we will outline the definition of CAS, practice identifying CAS characteristics through videos, and learn what characteristics are discriminative from other speech disorders. We will walk through the informal evaluation process, dig into choosing targets with interactive practice, and write goals for a motor planning approach. .
